A Celebration of Festival of the Lion King

Festival of the Lion King

A popular live show at Disney’s Animal Kingdom is Festival of the Lion King, a virtual explosion of colors, music and amazing talent. The show has recently been modified due to the current environment with COVID-19. Onstage and backstage adjustments have been made to allow for physical distancing as well.

You will be treated to 30 minutes of a variety of some of Disney’s best entertainment in this celebration. You’ll hear some of The Lion King's most popular music performed by magnificent singers. A blaze of color, feathers, beads, fringe and beautiful head-dresses are found in the costumes of the singer and dancers. Talented stilt walkers dance to the pounding beat with apparent ease. Audio-animatronic and live costumed characters are introduced on enormous moving stages. The spectacular finale includes a heart-stirring rendition of the Circle of Life.
